Soulful Stir Fry for the Ultimate Carb Fix!

Chinese stir-fried noodles and rainy evenings are so right together! Healthy, filling, quick, and packed with aroma, this stir fry recipe is a sure-shot winner! This dish incorporates a mélange of flavors from sweet, spicy, sour, and salty! Now, that’s a welcome change from run-on-the-mill food affairs of daily life!

If you are a beginner to making stir fried noodles, consider working with egg noodles; they are easier to handle. That said, other noodle varieties, such as glass noodles, rice noodles and Italian spaghetti, do just as well for a stir fry.

This recipe takes around 20 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook and serves 6 persons.

Health Benefits:

Chicken and noodles stir fry incorporate a balance between meat, vegetables, and noodles. This results in a perfect blend of fat, protein, essential vitamins and minerals, and a fair amount of carbohydrates.

Ingredients:

250 g noodles

2 cups diced chicken breasts

1 onion—julienned

1/2 cup julienned green peppers

1/4 cup chopped mushroom

1/4 cup julienned cabbage

4 red chilies

2 cloves garlic—julienned

1 inch ginger—peeled and julienned

2 tbsp rice wine vinegar

2 tsp fish sauce/oyster sauce

2 tsp soy sauce

1 cup chicken broth

3 tbsp olive oil

Salt to taste

Preparation:

  • In a vessel, boil water over high flame, add salt and oil to ensure that noodles don’t stick together.
  • Add noodles into boiling water and let cook until al dente.
  • Drain half-cooked noodles and rinse with cold water.
  • In a wok, heat oil over high flame.
  • Add red chilies and immediately turn off the flame. The heat of the chilies transfers to the oil. Remove the chilies.
  • Add chili oil to cooked noodles and toss to remove any stickiness.
  • In a wok, heat oil over medium flame and sauté onions until translucent.
  • Sauté ginger and garlic for 10 seconds.
  • Add peppers and stir mildly.
  • Push the vegetables aside, add chicken, and let sit.
  • Stir chicken with vegetables and let cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and fish sauce, and let cook for a few seconds.
  • Add noodles to chicken-and-vegetable mixture and toss noodles over high flame with a pair of tongs or forks.
  • Add chick broth and let simmer for a minute or two.

While it is certainly possible enjoy hot-off-the-stove stir-fried noodles on a holiday, experiencing the same at work might seem like a far-fetched idea. But do not despair! With a Vaya Tyffyn lunch box, your dream of having hot homecooked meals at work has come true! After a busy morning, open your Vaya Tyffyn to relish piping hot stir-fried noodles for lunch!

Trivia:

  • Stir-frying is an ancient Chinese cooking method of tossing ingredients over high flame, to keep juices intact and ingredients crispy.
  • Chinese cuisine has it roots in India. Just like in India, it was considered illegal to consume beef in China. The same laws existed in ancient Kora and Japan as well.
  • Based on the ayurvedic system, Chinese foods, like Indian cuisine, have a balance of six flavors: sweet, sour, astringent, salty, bitter, spicy!
  • In most parts of the world, a meal begins with soup. But the Chinese usually have soup at the end of a meal to aid digestion!
